At Hollingwood, we teach children how to stay safe whilst at school and at home. Not only do we focus on making safe and healthy decisions, we also work with teacher to help them develop their mental health and know how to keep healthy and make healthy choices.
We believe that by providing support for a child or young persons mental and emotional health, we can help create the best conditions for them to realise their potential. In doing this, we seek the advice and support of Step2. You can find out more about them by visiting their website. Although there is a cost attached to some of their services, they do offer free counselling for children above the age of 11 and their website holds a great deal of information you may find useful.
In addition, we work with a range of external partners to help us deliver a curriculum which teaches the children to keep healthy and make healthy choices in the world they live in. Our safeguarding curriculum includes working with:
West Yorkshire Police
West Yorkshire Cyber Safety Team
Bradford Road Safety Team
West Yorkshire Fire Service
St Johns Ambulance
Coram Life Education (Life Caravan)
Royal National Lifeboat Institution
Bradford Children’s Services
All our Assistant Head Teachers are trained to support the safeguarding of children. You can speak to them if you are concerned about the well-being of your child or their safety in any way, even if its only to get advice.
